TAMPA, Florida (AP) - A Tampa Bay area woman has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for leaving the scene of a motorcycle crash that left two people dead.

A Hillsborough County judge sentenced 53-year-old Susanne Meyers on Thursday.

Authorities say 62-year-old Thomas Steven Colson and his passenger, 69-year-old Galilee Wells Howard, were ejected from the 2009 Big Dog motorcycle when Meyers hit them on July 1, 2011. Neither was wearing a helmet.

The Tampa Bay Times reports Meyers left the scene after the crash but was found after her husband called authorities. She was not injured.
